Justice Gulzar Ahmed on Saturday (Dec 21) took oath as Chief Justice of Pakistan at a ceremony at Aiwan-e-Sadr in Islamabad . President Arif Alvi administered the oath.
Earlier, a full court reference was held on Friday (Dec 20) to pay tributes to the services of outgoing Chief Justice of Pakistan Asif Saeed Khosa. Judges of the apex court, Vice Chairman of Pakistan Bar Council and President of Supreme Court Bar Association are attending the reference.
Justice Asif Saeed Khosa while addressing the ceremony of full court bench, distanced himself from the special court’s verdict in high trason case against Pervez Musharraf and said that a campaign seems to have been launched to defame him and the institution of judiciary.
Justice Khosa noted that he was accused of supporting the Musharraf verdict in a meeting with journalists when he had never done so. “The truth will prevail,” he said in comments released to media before his speech to the full court.
